Safety Andre Cisco has become a game-changer for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Heading into the 2023 season, he was dubbed a potential breakout player to watch and he's off to a good start. Although he made a couple of mistakes, he was also responsible for forcing a fumble that helped the offense get the ball back. You would think that's enough for getting the spotlight after the game. He did get lots of attention following the game but it was due to complete non-related reasons.
Before the Jaguars' bout against the Indianapolis Colts, their social media team posted a video of his signing autographs for fans. That wasn't the video the clip went viral though. Sure, there's something commendable about spending time with fans and more players should follow his example. However, the reason third-year safety got so much attention was his attractiveness and physique.
In the video, you can see Cisco's bare arms and in the comments, you can see all kinds of comments complimenting him. Here's user @itsKARY_ saying out loud what others were thinking.
The Jaguars' social media team and Cisco took notice of the comments. It looks like they're having a good laugh.
Cisco, a third-round pick in the 2021 draft, spent most of his rookie year on the sidelines. However, he got the chance to start near the end of the season and showed flashes of the playmaker he was at the collegiate level.
With a new coaching staff in place, the Queens, New York native got the starting nod next to Rayshawn Jenkins last season. He made the most of it and went on to register 10 passes defensed and three interceptions, tied for the most in 2022 by any Jacksonville defender. If he keeps playing like he did against the Indianapolis Colts — minus the unnecessary roughness penalty — he should be able to join the upper echelon of NFL safeties by the end of the 2023 season.
The Jaguars have a promising safety tandem in Andre Cisco and Rayshawn Jenkins
Players take their preparation for game day very seriously. They spend the offseason and lots of money to make sure they're at peak condition by the opener. That said, they also enjoy what they do and won't pass up the chance to have a good laugh when possible. In Andre Cisco's case, he knows he has no control over what others say or don't about him on the video, so he's just going with it.
Most of the comments on the video aren't harmful, and there's nothing wrong with recognizing he's either good-looking or he's got a great body, as long doesn't go beyond that. It may even help him get more widespread recognition among fans who aren't heavily invested in the Jaguars.
Either way, It's good to see Cisco not make a big deal of something that's precisely not a big deal. He probably looked at the video and went on with his day. There are likely other more important things on his mind right now. The Jaguars' incoming matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs and potential starting 2-0 could be a couple of them.
